ghaT Gai Hai Qadr-O-Qimat Aaj Ke Insan Ki

ghaT ga.ī hai qadr-o-qīmat aaj ke insān kī

ham pe ġhālib ho ga.iiñ makkāriyāñ shaitān kī

jis tarah bhī dekhiye dahshat kā ik māhaul hai

ik khilaune ke barābar haisiyat hai jaan kī

ab dukāñ bāzār meñ ahl-e-ḳhirad kī band hai

ab ijāra-dārī hai dānā.ī par nādān kī

maiñ ne ye sachchā.ī jaanī hai bahut khone ke ba.ad

dostī achchhī nahīñ hotī kabhī nādān kī

zindagī kī mushkiloñ kā hal hai apnā hausla

kuchh usī se hotī hai khetī harī armān kī

zor-e-bātil ko zamāne meñ mayassar hai faroġh

aabrū ḳhatre meñ hai ab sāhib-e-īmān kī

zinda rahnā aaj kal ‘ḳhushtar’ bahut dushvār hai

bālā-dastī aaj dekhī jaatī hai balvān kī
